Shambolic Germany sent packing after loss to South Korea

REUTERS  Hannah McKay

Sweden finished top of Group F on goal difference, with both teams on six points ahead of South Korea and Germany on three apiece.

After Kim Young-gwon and Son Heung-min both scored in stoppage time to help their country to a famous victory over the reigning champions, relief swept around the Ekaterinburg Arena, as Mexicans realised their 3-0 defeat to Sweden wouldn't prevent them heading into the last 16.

A video-assistant-referee review overturned an offside call on the field to give South Korea the first goal of the match, in the 91st minute.

As the champions clambered around for an equaliser, Manuel Neuer charged up the pitch, allowing Tottenham's Son Heung-min to slide the ball into an empty net.

South Korea lost its opening two matches but still entered the game with a chance to advance.

Open steadily descended into carnage as the day progressed. "The best players in the world are up there trying to win a U.S. Rose putted like a magician to be only one shot from the lead and give himself a chance of adding to his 2013 title.

Low has had 12 success-filled years at the helm, but the manner of Germany's World Cup exit has been pathetic and there are a multitude of reasons for that.

Germany limped to a goalless conclusion of the first half but with Mexico vs. Sweden also a stalemate, it did not matter as Low's men were through by virtue of their head-to-head record against the Swedes - a 2-1 win last Saturday courtesy of Toni Kroos' 95th minute victor.

Sweden qualified for the last 16 as group winners with a convincing 3-0 win over Mexico, who also made it through after Germany's shock defeat.

Germany have now failed to qualify for the knockout stages, while Korea are also out.

What not to miss on World Cup Day 11
The first Group H match of the day - Japan vs Senegal will start at 8 pm local time, 8:30 pm IST and 4 pm BST. There's very little to separate all four teams in this group, and it should be a fascinating evening.

Grateful Mexicans gathered at the embassy after South Korea's win secured Mexico's place in the round of 16 in Russian Federation.

Mexican football fans partied at the Korean embassy in Mexico City on Wednesday (Thursday NZ time), personally thanking the Korean ambassador for his nation's shock 2-0 Fifa World Cup victory over Germany. Plus, full Germany vs South Korea TV channel details, the kick-off time and more.

Probably the only consolation for South Korea in this match was goalkeeper Jo Hyeon-woo, who was having an impressive World Cup debut despite his team's loss. "We need to talk about it calmly and I think it will take some hours for us to come to terms with it". And that's when Kim Young-gwon found himself standing in front of the net, with the ball at his feet.

Germany was becoming desperate but Cho was huge in the goal yet all expected the world champ to do what it always does: get a goal when needed. "It was only after the match was over that we knew the score, that was why a lot of us cried".

Thus, we can expect Joachim Low to make several changes from the team that won against Sweden.

All we want is a fair competition. "Rights are violated, democracy is in bad shape", said health sector worker Sema, 50, after voting in Istanbul.

Loew, who recently signed a contract extension, said he would take time to consider his future.
